  1. Thank you!) We had our interview on May 6. The officer warned his supervisor would take 2 weeks to review the case, and then I should return to him. So it took them 22 days to approve the case as we got “Card being produced” on May 28. So give them a little more time and I am sure you are to hear from them the next week or two. 🤗
  2. 👋Hi guys! AOS approved - May 28 Card Sent - May 30 Card picked up by the USPS - May 31 Card in the received - June 1 (seeing it in the informed delivery 🤩) So in our case it took 5 days from Card being produced to Card received in the mail. Wishing you all good luck! ✌️✌️✌️ And to those in despair - my previous weekend was the darkest in my life - right before the good news arrived. It’s always the darkest before the dawn 🤗🤗🤗
  3. People get theirs combos within 7-10 days after approval ✌️
  4. 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 CONGRATS!!! 🤩🎉🤗✊🙌🍾💃 I am sooooo happy for you!!!
  5. I was laughing and crying and laughing again for a couple of hours and couldn’t make myself think straight to write a post here. Yours is on its way now 🤗🙏😘
  6. We asked the officer at the interview and he surprised us with the answer - he said those processes are parallel and sometimes EAD and AP might arrive after the green card 🤷‍♀️ And that we should still try to send an inquiry regarding EAD/AP as the interview has no influence in this case
  7. Hi! It’s always the darkest before the dawn That was the darkest weekend and Memorial Day for us because of the processing times update. And we were preparing a letter to our Senator and Congressman and a lawyer. But today at 11:20am we got a “new card is being produced” email 🙀😭🙀🤩🙀🤪🙀😭🙀 couldn’t believe my eyes. Just minutes prior to it was sure it would never happen without me trying to push it. But it did. we filed around October 22, 2018 case received - November 2, 2019 AOS interview - May 6, 2019 Card being produced - May 28, 2019 they took 3 weeks to review the case after the interview at Baltimore FO No changes for our EAD or AP. Sending you all hugs and wishing you all be strong and have patience to get through this survival show in real life. It’s not the end of the journey though - more battles ahead but wish you all done with this one ASAP ✌️🤞✌️🤞✌️ As it means you may start to live again and get your identity back, start a new career, remember what it’s like to earn money (and use it to buy presents for your beloved ones instead of feeling guilty taking it from their paycheck), get your driver’s license and start driving (that will be me 🙌 soon), or may be study to get a local degree, and travel wherever you want, and have your weddings in your hometowns with your families. And finally become a part of local communities ✌️✊✌️ 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗 i guess i said too much 😊 PS Does the green card arrive with SSN or we have to file for it on our own?
  8. Hi! We are November filers, receive date - November 02, it took them 8 days to receive the application for some reason. We had our interview in Baltimore office, MD on May 6, so it’s been 21 days since that - and not a word from them. The officer said they were drowning in the number of applications, that their supervisors would have 2 weeks to review the cases after the interviews were completed. And then the case should get back to the same officer that ran the interview. May be that’s why you didn’t hear from them yet too. Hope you hear from them soon!
  9. We had an interview the same day in Baltimore. And still waiting for the case to be reviewed. 🤦‍♀️ The officer was not the one that was initially supposed to interview us. He seemed nice and friendly. But he didn’t say “I will recommend you to be approved” or anything, he looked through the photos, checked whatever documents we had, but only said his supervisor will have 2 weeks to review the case and that they have 120 days to make their decision, and that it was a common practice for this office. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ Counting days - 105 left 199 since we filed
  10. 199 days since filed 2 weeks as AOS interview done (that’s how much time the officer said his supervisor had to review the case - Baltimore FO) counting 120 days - 105 days left - for them to make their decision and notify us 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 and those 105 days are still more than 3 months and still no EA/AP/SSN really? somebody please wake me up from this nightmare is the uscis website down?
  11. Hi! I wish you good luck with the interview! ✌️ And yes let’s hope it’s just their regular processing practice not to announce their decision right away. 🙏🙏🙏
  12. Thank you! But it is hard to tell whether it’s alright or not. We were not told “you are approved” or “I will suggest you should be approved”. We were just informed of the further steps and that’s it 🤷‍♀️ I couldn’t read reviews of Baltimore field office on visajourney cause it kicks me out to this “goodluckday” sh&t all the time 😕 But I hope it is going to be a matter of a couple of weeks for us 🙏 Wishing everybody get their EADs/APs in the mail and interviews scheduled 🤗🤗🤗
  13. Good morning, guys! 👋 We had our AOS interview in Baltimore field office this Monday - May 6. All of us felt great relief that it’s done now and we are one step closer to the green cards. But our case is reviewed still and we know they have 120 days to make their decision. To begin with we got up at 5am to be there at 7am for our appointment but the interview started around 8.20. When the officer finally invited us it appeared that the officer that was supposed to interview us wasn’t at the office and that caused the delay. We went through all the questions on the application form - he questioned me, my husband and my 16 year old daughter, looked through the photos, asked my 5 year old to say who was on them. The atmosphere was pretty friendly, there were a lot of jokes and the officer looked like he enjoyed the interview. He actually was a very nice guy. We asked him about our EAD and AP and SSN and he said they even might arrive after the green cards as they are parallel to AOS, he looked online and said they were not touched 🤯(and it was 185 days from date received). We had to explain to him that we had no joint bank account as my husband’s bank required SSN. They guy was also surprised to hear I couldn’t get a driver’s license and said MVA should have a solution for those who entered the US lawfully. And then he explained the further procedure - 2 weeks for his supervised to go through the case and 120 days altogether to make a decision. For 2 of our 3 cases the status changed to “Interview was completed and case must be reviewed” same day. Well, now we have 120 days to count - and the process doesn’t seem endless 😃
